The EFM Feature

Yes, yes. We’ve seen it. We’ve seen the report that Mitt is not coming to the Southern Republican Leadership conference this April. But what does this mean for our efforts?
Honestly, not much. Of course, we would have enjoyed hearing him speak, but in the scheme of things, a 30 minute speech just isn’t that big of a deal. Our purpose is very simple: We are want to encourage him to run again in 2012 by showing him that he’s got a few friends down south.
If anything, our efforts are more important. As the only visible presence for Governor Romney (so far as we know) at the conference, we’ll need to be there in strength to avoid making the conference entirely about Sarah Palin’s speech or Mike Huckabee’s attempted comeback or some new, emerging “star.” Republican activists need to hear about Mitt, and we’re just the ones to tell his story.
Finally, we’ll still have a very good time. Memphis in 2006 was tremendously enjoyable for all our EFM (then Tennesseans for Mitt) friends, and New Orleans is known to be a pretty decent place to visit. Imagine Beale Street on steroids, hgh, and jacked up on Mountain Dew.
Don’t be deterred. E-mail Nancy and let’s show the flag for Mitt in the Big Easy.
